Cheap?

Many folks take them apart to clean it and coat the internal working with dialetic. Are you sure it isn't a connetion problem at the TPS?

Many will install a manual switch to "over-ride" the "syetem"

Still, others install the potentiomenter.

This has been discussed for years and seems to be a popular subject for any who have the four speed auto, as the TPS is very much a weak link. If it wasn't, it wouldn't be discussed so much.

Have you tried to adjust it? When I purchased my first truck with the TPS, it was recently replaced and still didn't work. I found that I had to adjust it.

What have you done? 30,000 miles sounds a little short lived.

Do you know how to test it per the OE service manual?

scrap the factory tps and put a DNR customs 1st/2nd Generation Dodge OverDrive Kit *91.5-98 12v, I can say that i was amazed how good the kit works, and took me about 20 minutes to install, no more shifting in and out of over drive and you can set speed to were you want over drive to kick in.

The downside is that it will shift into od at that speed regardless of how loaded you are or how steep the grade, or if you're just idling around town. It also won't give you an automatic full throttle downshift into third until you get below the set speed.

It could be not that it needs replaced, but adjusted. I know that it has been almost a year to the date (Jan. 24 according to my maint. log) that i last adjusted mine and i have to do it again.
